This is a huge bronze statue next to the Palace. Great for a photo shoot and visit as part of a walk through Split.

This awesome dude commands attention in a park adjacent to Diocletian's Palace in the center of Split. (The park is awesome, too!)

Cool statue of the man who brought religion to Croatia and was subsequently thrown in a barrel and killed for it. Rub his feet for luck.

We would like to have seen it when the weather was warmer, November is not the best month. Dramatic and interesting. Easy to find.
